Those who were brave enough to confront the freakishly hot weather at the Multnomah County Bike Fair on Saturday, were rewarded with a fun and fitting end to Pedalpalooza.
While some were happy to enjoy the two-wheeled ambiance with a nap in the shade, others carried on in the grand MCBF tradition of beer, bikes, dancing, and, like the sign says, “All bike fun, all the time.”
After perusing the expo for a cheap helmet, a free bike tune-up, a cap by Shaun Deller, or a cool, pedal-powered smoothie, most folks ended up watching (or being part of) the bike action.
In between bike jousts and general silliness, we danced to live music by The Spokes, The Golden Greats, and Chervona (they got the crowd dancing like crazy). Speaking of dancing, the B:C: Clettes (from Vancouver, BC), the Sprockettes, and Chain Reaction displayed their dynamic bike-crobatics for an appreciative crowd.
See more of the action, and the people who made it all happen, in my MCBF 2008 slideshow below (or go straight to the gallery).
[Note: After MCBF, the Sprockettes hosted their ‘Bicycle Bash’. I’ll have more about that later, but you can get a sneak peek of my photos here.]
